by MCS Staff

The personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2022’s Most & Least Diverse States in America, and Maryland was ranked the 9th ‘Most Diverse State in America.’

To determine where the most idea and identity exchanges have occurred at the highest level in the U.S. – and where the population is relatively more homogeneous – WalletHub compared the 50 states across six key categories: socio-economic, cultural, economic, household, religious and political diversity.

Diversity in Maryland (1=Most Diverse, 25=Avg.):

  • 14th – Income Diversity
  • 4th – Educational-Attainment Diversity
  • 5th – Racial & Ethnic Diversity
  • 15th – Linguistic Diversity
  • 9th – Birthplace Diversity
  • 5th – Worker-Class Diversity*
  • 26th – Marital-Status Diversity
  • 25th – Generational Diversity
  • 9th – Household-Size Diversity
  • 30th – Religious Diversity

*Includes civilian employed population aged 16 and older

Per the article, “The American narrative is a story of diversity. Our history tells of many different peoples coming together from every walk of life to form what is today a complex tapestry of backgrounds. Our story will continue to advance that narrative in the decades to come. The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by 2045 the U.S. will no longer have a single ethnic majority, currently non-Hispanic whites, and will grow increasingly more diverse in the years to follow.”
